|These two are grabbing the headlines in Europe|
There's a hard fight between the Nissan Leaf and the Renault Zoe for the #1 spot in Europe, with several changes in positions and few units separating them. Right now the Nissan Leaf has more 194 units than the Zoe and with both expecting to increase sales in the next months, it looks that things will continue to be interesting between these two.
Behind them, the Kangoo ZE is a comfortable third, followed by the Prius Plug-In and the Renault Twizy.
Speaking of Twizy, it's important to register that it ended last year in number one, so a drop to fifth and just 7% share is a matter of concern. It wasn't the only one to drop positions though, as last year's number two, the Opel Ampera, also dropped to #6 YTD and #8 in April.
|Are these two heading for extinction?|
For any drop, there's always someone rising, besides the two on top, there are other models climbing the sales chart, like the Smart Fortwo ED, up five places to #7, or the Volvo V60 Plug-In coming out of nowhere (#22) to a respectable eighth place, an important position considering that this is the most expensive model here.
By brands, Renault increases by 6% the share it had last year to 43%, followed by Nissan with 20% share (Up from 12% last year) and Toyota with 13%.
